  1. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    Hey Guys, First post, but I need some help. I have a 2010 E83, and the 4x4 and brake lights have been lit up yellow for about a year now. I took it in for diagnostics a couple places and was told that it is likely the actuator gear on the transfer case. They said it's common for this model X3...

    Hello, Has anyone experienced a "blinking gear indicator" issue before? The car (F30) would function normally but on some random occasions when the car would come to a full stop (red light, parking, etc...) or when putting the car in reverse, there would be the gong sound (same as seatbelt...

    No problems at all with my 2008 535i until yesterday evening. Went to the library, parked, came out approx. 10 minutes later.

    Hi everyone, I was tinkering with my shifter the other day and accidentally ripped the ribbon cable inside there.:tsk: I now have to replace the whole unit since I cannot just buy the cable.:thumbdwn: Is there programming that has to be done after I've swapped them?
  16. Interior
    I have a "Pink" seat gear for the rear up/down motion of the E36 power seats. It fits both the driver and passenger seats. This is not to be confused with the "White" or "Green" recliner gears. These are a common break, when you hear the motor turning but the seat does not adjust. Visit the link...

    We drive a Mini Cooper S 2014 with a manual transmission (less than 6000K) and one out of three times as I slide in first gear, it gives a small kick and it slips into neutral. I need to hold the shift stick in position for this not to happen. Mini Service garage tells me they can't find the...

    I have a 95 bmw 325i with 143,000 miles. Every time I shift into second, it feels like I have to slam the shifter into place. Not super hard, but it is very stuff and not as smooth as the other gears. What could this be from and do you guys have any suggestions as to what to do?
